Raspberry Pi IP54 Outdoor Project Enclosure Assembly Instructions

It is difficult to make IP54 level protective boxes. Especially if this box is going to be a generic box and many people use it in many different ways. But we worked on this and did our best to come up with smart solutions.

Raspberry Pi has many different sockets and the enclosure is not big, you should follow the instructions below for assembly.

Package Includes

  • 1 x IP54 case with clear acrylic top cover
  • 1 x Acrylic PCB base plate for the mounting interface between boards and case bottom
  • 5 x IP54 certified cable insert (4x2mm, 4x3mm, 4x4mm, 4x6mm, 2x8mm) w plugs
  • 1 x Insert Frame + Allen Key
  • 4 x M5x30mm Stainless Steel Screw with plastic wall fixing plugs
  • 6 x M3x7mm Stainless Steel Screw for fixing the base plate to the case bottom
  • 2 x M5x25mm Stainless Steel Screw with Nuts
  • 4 x M2.5x10mm Stainless Steel Screw for fixing Raspberry Pi to the base plate
  • 4 x M2.5x6mm Stainless Steel Screw for board stacking
  • 2 x M2.5x11mm Brass Standoff for board stacking
  • 8 x M2.5 Stainless Steel Flat Washer
  • 8 x M2.5 Stainless Steel Nut
  • 8 x 400mm Heavy-duty zip-tie
1. First, locate the Raspberry Pi in the box and place the fixing screws.
  • The location of the raspberry pi will differ according to the cables and sockets you will use.

  • The plexi in the box is designed to provide almost all placement positions of the Raspberry Pi.

  • If there are cables that need to rotate in the placement in the box, choose them from the flexible ones or choose from the cables with 90 degree socket.

  • Mount the plexi with 2 screws.

2. Pass the cables you want to use through the cable entry point and connect to Raspberry Pi.
  • Determine a position in the box where the cables are most comfortable. You can mark this place with a marker, or it's easy to remember.
3. Disconnect the cables and remove the plexi.
  • Install the RPi fixing screws(2.5x10mm) in the position where you decide to fix the Raspberry Pi.
Screw mounting sequence: Screw --> Flat Washer --> Plexi --> Flat Washer --> Nuts

We can now freely fix the RPi at any time.

4. To attach the gasket of the cable frame, first remove the protective paper of the adhesive side.
  • Stick it on the box, paying attention to the screw holes.
5. Re-pass the cables through the frame opening and insert the RPi into their places. Put the Raspberry Pi back.
6. Identify the suitable inserts for your cables. Attach the cables to the inserts and bring the inserts to the closest point to the box.
7. Remove the RPi and pull it out with the cables. Be careful not to move the inserts.
8. Place the inserts in the frame.
9. Pull the RPi into place with the frame, and once you fit the RPi into the screws, the frame should return to its position outside the box.
10. Mount the bottom of the frame to the box with M5X25mm screws and nuts.
  • You can install the screws with an Allen key. It will be better if you can hold the nuts from the inside with pliers etc. while tightening.
11. Mount RPi in place with nuts.
  • In this way, only RPi is fixed. If you are going to use HAt with RPi, you can use standoff.

  • Check the holes of the inserts and if there is a dropping plug, place it.

12. Assemble the upper part of the frame in place.
13. Fix the plexi with its screws.
14. Put the gasket of the top cover in place.
15. Mount the cover to the box with the screws.
